How to connect to Personal Workspace template with 2022.4 on-premise Orchestrator?

I have a problem connecting my Studio to my Personal Workspace template. Our platform just got updated to 2022.4 (Orchestrator, Robots, Studio). We have an on-premise Orchestrator. As known, Personal Workspace templates do not have Machine Key anymore in 2022.4. Client Secret is The New Thing but you cannot set it to a Personal Workspace.

Previously I have been using my Personal Workspace’s Machine Key to connect to Orchestrator. After the update I disconnected from Orchestrator in the Assistant and when I tried to reconnect, the only options are Client ID and Machine Key. Neither or those give the option to Sign In to Orchestrator as I understood this should work with 2022.4 and Personal Workspaces?

2022.4 Release Notes:

Assistant options does not have a Sign In option:

When I select Connect to Orchestrator from Studio, no Sign In option is there either.


How this should work? From where do I log in?

Hey @EevaHanninen

Machine key you are unable to get from Tenant → Machines ?


@Nithinkrishna: There is no Machine Key for Personal Workspace anymore in 2022.4 version.

Okay @EevaHanninen

But what is the exact issue you are facing ? The connection?

The problem here is how to connect UiPath Studio to Personal Workspace (to get the license) without Machine Key or Client ID.

Resolved it! When upgrading Studio to 2022.4.x, you must NOT select ‘Register UiPath Robot as Windows Service’.


So here’s step-by-step how I fixed the problem:

  1. Run the update installer again without checking ‘Register UiPath Robot as Windows Service’ setting.

  2. Open Studio and login with the following steps.

  3. Select ‘More Options’:

  4. Select ‘Sign in’:

  5. Give the Orchestrator URL and click ‘Sign in’:

  6. Orchestrator sign in page opens in browser, log in and that’s all. After that, in UiPath Assistant you can see that connection is set via Service URL.
